I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe in miracles. ~Audrey Hepburn


Down the steps
Right, Left
A pile of books in my arms
People stalk past, towering over me
They knock me down, I hit the ground
A soccer cleat scrapes my knee
The pointed fingers
The muffled snickers
It's just too much to watch
Want to cry in shame,
Spread the blame,
But who would listen, anyway?
Leaning over to pick up my things,
A muddy foot steps breaks one of my Rings
My eyes cry out
"Someone, please help!"
Instead, they walk away
They leave me there, all alone
My books and I
In
Shame

I hope people will see how this girl is feeling, and how her lack of hope, friends and happiness affects her.

Wow, to the both of you, when I read your comments, I literally blushed. Thank you so much, you have no idea how much that means.

Friends come and friends go, but a true friend sticks by you like family.

I totally agree. What an amazing prom. And great emotion put into it.

I've consistantly seen this theme of such deep emotion throughout all of your poems. Its really amazing and will definitely enhance your writing later on in life. Keep it up!!!!

This hurts...alot...but thats good. that means you did something write when you were writing it. Actually you did a lot right when writing this. This is great. Don't change a thing. I was going to comment on perfectly damaged for your forum, but i have already commented and i didn't feel it would be right to repost just to get feedback. :) anyway if you could please give me feedback.
